    Just wondering if anybody out there knows the dimensions for a shipping box for a guitar in case. I guess the typical box that music dealers receive guitars in from the manufacturers.

    Thanks

    There is no typical box. Fenders come in boxes that are just a little larger than the case, Gibson electric boxes are maybe 2" thicker, 3" longer and 2" wider. Others vary a lot. Acoustics and electrics are obviously different. Why

    A typical fender rectangle case is shipped in an (approximately) 47 x 17 x 6 box...
